Hi doctor,

I am a 30 year old female and planning for a first pregnancy. Thereby across, I came to know about rubella test. I have gone through this test recently and it came out to be non-reactive IgG less than 3 IU/mL and IgM is less than 10 IU/mL. Should I go for its vaccination? If yes, then how long should I avoid conceiving?

Hello,

  • Yes, you can go for rubella vaccination. You should avoid pregnancy for at least 3 months after that.
  • You may practice barrier contraception till then or a hormonal contraception can be opted from the second month.
